Creating a non-slip surface for your tub

November 27th 2001

I am tired of using rubber mats and decorative non slip decals in my bath tub. They are inconvenient to dry and hard to keep clean. I have a fear of myself or one of my family falling on the slippery surface of the tub. I have heard that there is something that can be applied to the surface of the tub to give a non-slip surface. Can you tell me what the product is?

The bottom of the bathtub can become very slippery with soaps and bubblebaths and bath oils etc. and indeed can be very dangerous.

The product that you are looking for is called Safe Tile. The process will etch the surface of the tub making it non-slip.
